Overall Satisfaction with ADP Workforce Now

We use ADP Workforce Now to process payroll and HR functions for 2 companies. Workforce Now enables us to onboard a new employee seamlessly, and the employee can choose to elect e-Earning Statements once an invite is sent and an account created. Every step of adding a new employee is easy to follow and self-explanatory. The payroll and reporting ends are efficient, without my payroll person having to spend a lot of time to get payroll and reporting done.
  • Employee profiles; pay, personal, and employment are easy to navigate and edit.
  • Sample reports are useful! We used the sample reports to apply for PPP loans and forgiveness and for insurance audits every year.
  • We can easily upload a file with hourly employees' hours.
  • The font size of employees' pay rate on Pay Profile should be smaller. I'm always worried someone walks up to me and I can't minimize the screen fast enough.
  • Assigning a time-off policy isn't easy to find.
  • Vacation accrual policy is set up behind the scenes, I'd like to see the criteria without calling customer service.
  • We can focus on our overall business objects without spending too much time in processing payroll.
  • We can hire a new employee quickly.
  • The timekeeping module was pricey and we chose another vendor instead.
Since ADP is web-based, we can access it from different locations. We haven't had the need to deploy across multiple departments.
  • Deputy's time-keeping system.
Very easy! we export a CSV file from Deputy with hours worked by each employee and upload it to ADP. The only issue is we can't get paid time-off on the same report.
Surepayroll works well for smaller companies. The customer service hours are longer than ADP which helps.

Would you buy ADP Workforce Now again?


Most of the time I get an experienced customer service person when I call. When I don't get a newcomer, takes a long time to get an answer. But I have to say all customer service agents are very professional and polite, which make waiting a bit more tolerable.

ADP Workforce Now takes away the burden of having to make tax deposits and preparing employment quarterly/annual returns internally. Especially with us having employees in 2 states, it helps to let ADP take over the tax reporting. However, the Company must have funds in the bank account 2 business days before the pay date which may be a problem for companies who don't have the extra cash reserve.
